sandy might find this hard to believe. a new report finds that the utility company response was typical or even a little faster than after other big storms. associated press released those findings. energy department records show that new york utilities restored power to at least 95% of those customers, some 13 days after the hurricane hit. ap says power restorations took longer after hurricanes katrina, wilma and ike, which does sound surprising. >> not really. you have to understand, it's more built up. you're putting telephone poles in by hand basically. gloria went through long island in '85. it took three weeks to get power back there. >>> we are having a nice weekend. i added a couple of high clouds on sunday. other than that, that's it. this is a beautiful shot from our weather cam. you can see the washington monument, clear skies. sun is going down. going to get chilly now. 49 at national, but everybody else in the low to mid 40's already. pressure is steady. and really looking at a crisp night. breezes will pick up a little bit later on tonight. so if you're headed out, it is f
